    I am looking to increase core strength and started working out with bands by recommendation of a fitness trainer and I am seeing immediate results. Just wondering, if anyone else uses bands and what are your goals with them?

    I've been using Therabands for a long time. I like its portability. The past 6 months, I have stopped using them exclusively, switching to dumbbells. Oddly, I experience soreness using db's because I can lift heavier weights. But my objective is to get a lean body like a dancer, not a heavy-duty bodybuilder.

    Bands are good when I do Pilates because they up the intensity of the exercise.

    Is your fitness trainer female? I notice females tend to go for bands. I was introduced to bands when I worked part time at a physical therapists' center back in college.
